On 4-5 September 2012, activists from across the country will attend People & Planet’s Volunteer Training 2012.
Right now, activists all over the world are preparing for a term of action against adidas. At Volunteer Training, we’ll plan how to take on adidas.
Over a year ago, PT Kizone, a factory that stitched clothes for adidas shut down when its owner fled the country. Thousands of workers were left jobless and unpaid by the factory closure. Every company that used PT Kizone paid the redundancy they owed - except adidas.
Adidas have left a gaping hole of $1.4 million in the pockets of Indonesian workers. Now, activists will plan how to get them to pay up.
Still, adidas haven’t paid. So what will make them give in?
At Volunteer Training 2012, you can decide how to proceed. The event will be held 4-5 September in Oxford. On 4 September, activists will plan the campaign against adidas. On 5 September, we’ll plan how to get 30 more universities to join the Worker Rights Consortium.
People & Planet activists will be joined by activists from War on Want to plan the campaign.
You’ll get training in how to plan and run campaigns, meet new activists from across the country and prepare for campaign victory. The event is completely free, including overnight accommodation and food. We can pay travel expenses if necessary.
